President of Energenecs satisfied with move to old Ducati building in summer

   Jared Feider knew what his measuring stick was.
    The president of Energenecs moved into the former Ducati building in June and had a simple expectation.
    “My gauge was that I hoped that I would’ve or should’ve done this sooner, rather than later, which I agree, we should have,” he said. “Overall, I’m very pleased. Everybody’s got a good home now and has something to really be proud of for years to come.”
    The building, located at 700 E. Milan Drive, was used to sell Corse Superbikes but was vacant since 2009.
    “The village is extremely happy that Energenecs has made Saukville its home,” said village administrator Dawn Wagner. “Energenecs is an excellent addition to Saukville bringing professional engineers, sales personnel and technical support personnel to the community.”
    The building was purchased in December by Feider, whose company of 37 employees provides treatment control systems and controls for the municipal water market.
    Essentially, Energenecs helps municipalities treat their water through equipment partners and control systems. Feider can assist consulting engineering firms and help utility managers design reliable long-term quality water/wastewater treatment systems specific to the utilities needs and budget.
    Feider, who has worked at Energenecs since 1993 and acquired the company in 2006, says it was fairly wide open on the interior.
    “The unique make-up of the building, being about two-thirds office and one-third warehouse and fabrication area, fit our needs quite well,” Feider said.
    Previously, Energenecs’s main office was located in Cedarburg and its fabrication center was in Oostburg. Now, both are located in Saukville.
    The reason for leaving was two-fold, according to Feider.
    The first was getting everybody together because design and engineering was done in Cedarburg, and fabrication was taken care of in Oostburg.
    “Although you can use technology to a great extent, it’s just not the same as being able to have an engineer walk next to the guy who’s assembling the panel and work out any issues,” Feider said. “Having that ability now is pretty valuable.”
    The other reason for the move was the Ducati building is about 25,000 square feet, 10,000 more than what Energenecs was using.
    “We picked up some extra room for future growth and expansion,” Feider said. “Grow our volume, if you will. We have a pretty good, large basis here in the upper Midwest. So we now have room to add people and grow those capabilities.”
